The facility has been upgraded to provide the university’s students with hands-on experience of the latest recording techniques.
The Technische Hochschule Lübeck – University of Applied Sciences – has upgraded its recording studio to more object-based immersive mixing, thanks to Genelec Smart Active Monitoring.
Genelec’s The Ones three-way monitors were selected for the project primarily for their coaxial design, compact size and impressive sound. The studio now boasts six workstations each with a Dolby Atmos Production Suite for mixing over headphones, plus one workstation with an Avid S6 console, Dolby Atmos Mastering Suite with RMU, and a Genelec monitoring system. This system comprises S360s in the LCR positions, 8351s and 8341s as surrounds and overheads, with 7380 subwoofers delivering low end support.
Additionally, GLM software played an important role in the new studio by efficiently configuring all the monitors.
The room’s entire signal routing and monitoring has been programmed and configured from stereo music production to 9.1.4 Dolby Atmos and 10.1.4+1 fulldome mixes – including backwards compatibility with previous technology set-ups – meaning that the upgraded space provides everything the university’s team was looking for.
